Can you send a text message to a landline? How will the receiver get your message? Mobile carriers offer a complicated service of converting the text message to a voice message and reading it to the receiver.
Businesses cannot afford to work with such a confusing system. You need comprehensive software that allows them to read and respond to customer messages sent to their landline numbers.
Landline texting is where you allow your customers to message you on a landline number and respond to it from the same number. The messages will reach your business email and can be accessed from a computer, laptop, or smartphone. You can have the same number for voice calls and messages instead of multiple numbers to stay in touch with customers.
When you text a landline without using a text-to-landline service, what happens?
Let’s suppose that you use only your landline to communicate with customers. You haven’t used special software or API to use the landline number for business texting. So when a customer sends your landline number a text message, the carrier will check if your number is eligible for the text-to-landline service.
If yes, the text message will be recorded at the carrier’s end in a female voice. They will then make a service call to your landline number to read the text message aloud. Texting acronyms and emojis are read in their full form.
In short, the carrier converts the text message to a recorded voice message and plays it aloud as a service call. This doesn’t really serve the purpose of getting a text message. Moreover, you cannot respond to this message by sending a text. It’s inconvenient, complicated, and messy.
But what if you haven’t enabled the text-to-landline service? You won’t even know that a customer texted your landline number until they inform you. The message is lost forever.
